I had to include my music playlist for the beginning of this month since music is a fun part of my life. I enjoy listening to music, just like most people but wanted to show you what I’ve been listening to. Sometimes you can tell a lot about a person from what they listen to… or that’s what I’ve heard. So this month for me it’s all about the newer music that came out by Ariana Grande and Zayn Malik, who are two of my favorite singers as their voices are soulful and they have real talent unlike lots of pop stars now. I also find music from other YouTubers and from past musicians that have new music too. So give it a look and hope you find a song or two that you enjoy!
Be Alright- Ariana Grande
Greedy- Ariana Grande
Sometimes- Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande has that pop sound I really like along with having a very talented voice. I honestly think she sounds close to an angel since she can belt out words. I like listening to her music to feel more girly and put me in a good mood for a fun day!
How to Feel- Moxie Raia
Wow, I heard Moxie Raia at the Justin Bieber concert as she opened for him. This song is quite a vulnerable, deep song and I have a few lyrics I like most from this. It goes like this…
“Kiss you with fake passion
look in your eyes through opaque glasses
touch you with a velvet glove
tell you all I need is love.”
What’s not to like about Zayn? Ok, ok I think he’s good looking, but I also can tell he has an amazing voice. His new album tends to fit my style that I like, like a lot! It’s more unique than his pop group days and I can tell his music is maturing and getting better. I’m glad he made his own album and it didn’t disappoint. He uses his voice to the fullest! I like most of the songs, but BeFoUr is one of my favorites. It’s got a bit of an indie pop vibe going on.
Fashion Killa- ASAP Rocky
My brother is obsessed with ASAP Rocky, I’m not even kidding. OBSESSED! I’m not the biggest fan, since my style isn’t rap that much… until I heard the Fashion Killa song! It’s more of the rap pop that I like with a lighter, upbeat tone to it.
LIKE I WOULD – Oliver Nelson Remix- ZAYN
Here’s another song from Zayn, but it’s an Oliver Nelson remix for a more fun vibe! I like most of the remixes by Oliver Nelson and find them to be perfect for the summer.
Guillotine- Jon Bellion, Travis Mendes
My brother showed me Jon Bellion a few years ago and I found his music to be so unique since he had his own style on indie pop where you would be able to recognize his music in a heartbeat. This song is one of his dancing songs!
Never Be Like You (feat. Kai)- Flume
Flume came out with his new album and a YouTuber I adore recommended this song. I’d heard it before and quite liked it, so I’ve added it to my playlist.
Be Your Girl- Teedra Moses
Another YouTuber found song as it was on We Are To The 9s video for a lookbook as the background music. I thought it was different and I’d never heard it before so I included it in the playlist.
A Change of Heart- The 1975
The 1975 have been one of my favorite bands ever since I fell in love with the song “Chocolate” then the song “Girls.” That album with those songs was the style that I tend to like a lot, besides my pop side. Their new album is a bit of a change for me and may take some time to grow on me as some of the songs are not to my liking yet. I do favor this song out of all of them to be honest. I find it to be a mellow, soulful song about breakups.
